NYC  Healer @ Black Women’s Truth & Reconciliation Commission on Sexual Assault

On Thursday the first Black Women’s Truth & Reconciliation Commission will convene in New York City. Intergenerational survivors will speak about their experiences and we will collectively interrogate the history of accepted sexual violence against Black women in America.
 View the Public Program:
For centuries, the rape and terrorization of Black women’s bodies was legal for the generation of wealth and labor. We hold these atrocities in our folklore, cellular memory, and spirits. Our bones are oh so tired of waiting for someone to enact justice on our behalf and on behalf of our ancestors.
We are ready to take action. The Black Women’s Truth & Reconciliation Commission, is visioning justice and calling for it ourselves.
 “We are the ones we have been waiting for and no one else is coming.”
